Clive comes with many years of experience in private counselling, leading workshops and group presentations. Clive balances private practice with academic appointments in psychology. He has held positions of lecturer, senior lecturer, Asst Professor and Head of School in Psychology. 

As a counselling psychologist, Clive is a specialist in psychological therapy focusing on the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders and concerns. He applies a wide variety of evidence-based psychotherapeutic approaches to ensure your specific needs and circumstances are addressed effectively. Clive works with adults, adolescents and children, either individually, with couples or whole families to ensure the development of positive healthy relationships.

In his presentation, Clive will address the issues related to the transition from childhood to adolescence.  He will explain the changes that occur in the adolescent brain and how to maintain effective communication even at the most difficult times. Navigating gender stereotypes, peer group pressure, recognising the signs of mental health issues and building strategies to cope are all pressing issues that parents need tools to use to guide their teenager through the challenging years. With our children growing up in this changing world around us, you can’t afford to miss this great opportunity to learn how to stay connected.
